From the Gotham Gazette:
Following his narrow victory last night, Michael Bloomberg may make changes — Ben Smith reports in Politico that he has “already promised a major shakeup of his senior aides.”
So who’s headed out the door? David Bloomfield, an education professor at Brooklyn College, bets on Schools Chancellor Joel Klein.
“Eight years seems enough for the chancellor, who has a history of short-term jobs and immediate prospects as an internationally acclaimed education consultant,’” Bloomfield writes. “Also, believe the rumor that Bloomberg traded the chancellor’s head for the legislature’s renewal of mayoral control and that a new chancellor will help Bloomberg counter charges of third-term lethargy.
Bloomfield sets out some possible successors, including former Chicago and Philadelphia superintendent Paul Vallas, and Christopher Cerf, who had a top post at Tweed before going to the Bloomberg campaign.
